A little pub history
Formerly known as the King's Head, The Hillside Inn started life in the early 1800's, when many of our guests were coach travellers going between London and Brighton. Although the building wasn't used as a pub for half of the 19th Century, by the 20th Century The Hillside Inn was welcoming guests from all over West Sussex.

Our gorgeous historic pub started life as a coaching inn during the early 1800s when coach travel between London and Brighton took off. We have a lovely patio and just south of the inn is Tilgate Park.
